KQED’s Climate Watch Reacts to Gleickgate

Russ Steele

Peter Gleick was one of KQED Climate Watch’s go to guys when it came to climate change issues.  The would report on all of Gleick Climate Change Reports that he wrote for California government agencies. When ever I would comment on flaws in those reports, Peter Gleick was quick to respond on the Climate Watch Blog. It was almost like Climate Watch and the Pacific Institute was joined at the hip.

It will interesting to see how Climate Watch reports the story, including the future of Dr Gleick, who appears to have severely damaged the global warming movement and put himself in legal jeopardy. He has admitted to obtaining the Heartland documents by fraud, and releasing them to warmer web sites. He has yet to admit to writing the “smoking gun” fake memo, but there are multiple bloggers on the trail of the writer.

It will be interesting to see how this episode plays out on National Public Radio in San Francisco. Stay Tuned.

I do not listen to NPR in Sacramento. Have they report and comment on the Heartland ethic challenge by Dr. Gleick?

    No NPR report on Gleick as of this morning, but they have published a piece on their website that is exquisitely wordsmithed. Be assured that no one on the warmer side will exhibit contrition about what this sleazebag has done. It is all a diminished little tempest in a teapot – nothing to worry about upsetting the major thrust of AGW propaganda. NPR doesn’t even recognize that there is science on the side of the ‘disbelievers’. The wagons have cricled.
